Halcyon Days' antiques and their contemporary designs are incomparable collectors' items, gifts par excellence.

Small boxes enameled on copper were first made in England in the 1740s.

England for a variety of practical purposes: to contain snuff and patches - 'beauty spots' made of black paper or taffeta - and cachous to sweeten the breath. Boxes intended for breath mints, called bonbonniere.

Susan Benjamin, assisted by a team of artists, creates each Halcyon Days Enamels design in her Brook Street, London studio.

In 1970 Halcyon Days began a new chapter in the history of English enamels.

Susan Benjamin's design artistry combined with the manufacturer's expertise to revive the 18th century craft that produced the first Halcyon Days Enamels collection.
